The style of System 162 is based on the mitre cut. In the 1920s, the French architect Robert Mallet-Stevens had the idea to cut a round tube and to join it back together again mitred at right-angles. In this way he created a minimalist lever handle for timeless architecture. Today the design is mainly known as the "Frankfurt handle". The puristic design concept of System 162 has an impressive linear shape, a high degree of functionality and material options. System 162 includes formally matched fittings and sanitary accessories and therefore enables continuous design from the door through to the sanitary room.
